A quick thought for the El Enab Costume

I have been wondering at great length about how to do the grapes costume. For me, it has to be a velvet base (preferably smooth, but crushed velvet at a pinch, if I can't get the right colour in smooth). It needs to be substantial. However, if these beautiful grapes are to be seen properly, that rules out dark coloured fabric, and it seems nigh on impossible to get hold of light coloured smooth stretch velvet.

Then a little lightbulb went off in my head- it's basically only the bra & belt set that needs to be light coloured. I can have a separate skirt & gauntlets in the dark stretch velvet, and make the bra & belt & whatever accessories in a completely different fabric.

I will be in Reading next week for the Ranya Renee workshop. I will be going early and stopping off at Fabricland, to see what I can find there.

That one's a way into the future. There are other costumes before it on the List.
